about me

Hello Ruby Tuesday...


I'm from the States but have lived in various countries overseas for half of the last 16 years.

I've had the honor of representing the US (as a junior), Bermuda and Costa Rica in international tournaments

When in the States, I live in the DC area and play the WBL Unit game

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: KQ7542 J42 QT Q4
And over 4, is 4 keycard for hearts?
Prahalad Rajkumar's bidding problem: KT JT72 AJ9652 6
Best not to put all of your eggs in one basket
Good judgment all round
I'm not sure that bidding a slam that requires an 8-0 break qualifies as good judgement.
Declare this 6D, please
Without having seen Michael’s infinitely more fun line, I will be taking the spade hook to pitch a heart and ruffing one club in dummy - hoping for either a 3-2 D break or Qxx of clubs (or both :)
Sven Pride's bidding problem: J96 A642 T82 QT7
South is a very good player, but is pretty straightlaced. Of the two, north is more likely to psych. But you can trust your pd’s takeout double. With a balance 17-19 he will pass.
We blocked them at MPs
South has 4 spades and 5 good hearts and passed 1D?
Who's to blame?E
Pd has invited to double for penalty. If you're looking for better than a KJT8x stack, you may be waiting for a long time. That said - I'm not sure West has the double of 2N so...
How many times would you pass?
Either you open 3C or you pass throughout. Bidding on this when the opps haven't found a fit is... anti-percentage
ATB Matchpoint disaster
Yes, I was thinking that the spade and diamond lengths might be reversed.
Too weak to reverse but holding 6m-5M, which suit do you open with?
Well, yes - that's a 4-loser hand - easily within reverse strength
